WEBINAR session,


PART ONE: Recognising and Supporting Parents in Parental Conflict: Applying knowledge, skills and techniques


Conflict between parents is a normal part of relationships. However, there is a large body of evidence that shows that parental conflict which is frequent, intense and poorly resolved can harm children’s outcomes – regardless of whether parents are together or separated.

The new national Reducing Parental Conflict (RPC) Programme is working to interrupt that cycle, embedding evidence-based support to tackle parental conflict in local areas.


By the end of this half-day skills-based workshop delivered by KnowledgePool, participants will be able to:

  • Recognise relationship distress at an early stage and when it is potentially damaging
  • Support couples experiencing parental conflict and be empowered to act, report or refer should domestic abuse be disclosed/identified
  • Revisit the stressors that may lead to parental conflict
  • Recognise the role of fathers / male carers in a child’s life and understand the importance of including co-parents in all forms of co-parenting couples
  • Build confidence and skills by using effective listening and questioning techniques to identify and discuss parental conflict triggers
  • Understand your role and responsibilities in discussing parental conflict with parents, to help frontline practitioners assist parents to understand the impact of parental conflict on their children


Delegates are asked to bring anonymised information on a case involving parental conflict

which may be worked on together in CASE STUDY discussions.


This webinar is in 2 parts so please ensure you book a place on both part one and two.


Please note you will receive joining instructions directly from KnowledgePool and you will be joining via Adobe Connect
